The famous Welsh pastor, David Martyn Lloyd-Jones, was a well known British evangelical leader in the 20th century. As pastors of Westminster Chapel in London for almost 30 years, Lloyd-Jones developed a reputation as a powerful preacher and staunch opponent of liberal theology.
Lloyd-Jones was born on December 20, 1899. So, in honor of his birthday, this morning’s prayer comes from him.
“O Lord our God, have mercy upon us. Forgive us especially; we pray thee again, for our folly – for our foolish talking about our century and the ‘modern man’, as if anything had changed.
Awaken us, we pray thee, and bring us to see that thy method is still the same, that the truth remains unchanged and unchanging, and that the power of the blessed Holy Spirit is in no sense diminished.
Lord, hear us. Revive thy work O Lord, thy mighty arm make bare. Speak with a voice that wakes the dead and make the people hear. And unto thee and unto thee alone, shall we give all the praise and the honor and the glory, both now and forever, amen.”
